Serving North Carolina Legal Community: A message from William Stroud, President of Lawyers Insurance.
As a young boy growing up in Ayden, NC, the idea of community was impressed deeply upon me. Each of the businesses and professionals were integral to our town’s common good and success. There was a town pharmacist, a town doctor, a town dentist, and a town attorney. You could get new tires down at Tripp’s or pick out a new car from the folks at Leo Venters Ford. My dad could sell you most any insurance you might need.
Community meant familiarity and accountability. For a kid that meant knowing you would be found out if you made trouble; it also meant someone would be there to take you home if you wrecked your bicycle or got hurt playing football at the playground. For adults it meant serving your fellow citizens, both through your business or profession, and through civic involvement and leadership, including showing up at the high school football game on Friday nights.
Despite explosive growth in North Carolina, the legal profession retains a community feel, which is enhanced through the NC Bar Association and other affinity organizations.
At Lawyers Insurance, whose sole mission is to serve the legal community, it means understanding and evolving to meet the insurance needs of the legal profession through rapidly changing times. We are familiar with your practice and we are accountable to serve law firms and lawyers.
